Isn't it cool when flying something that was once just a thought?!

I see HMT has an orange prop so I'm guessing GWS powered right?

Very nice Philip,

I'm impressed that you got the weight down so much.

I might have to try the retract thing on my Zoot Scoot. How well does the gear hold up in the grassy field?

Hi!

Yeah, I expected the weight to be about 290 g but Im WERRY pleased with the 230 I ended up with

I did make some ROGs from Gras w/o problem, I had ful elevator in the first few meters then it got flight peed and it climbes out werry well...

Im so pleased with this machine, total building time from first drawing to finnished plane i about 5 days

Now the GWS P-51 is the next project

Best regards

What's it covered with Philip? Must be some pretty light stuff to come out at that weight.

Whenever I try and make a wing that light it just warps on me.
